I just found out something about pineapples that gives me a lot of hope. I found it on a raw foods site. They contain the enzyme Bromelain which is an anti-inflammatory that helps muscles to heal. It can also help people with arthiritis. It sounds like maybe it can help with a few chronic pain issues related to inflammation.
Do you know of natural foods and herbs that have been of help with chronic pain and other health issues? I realize it is an entire field of study and there is tons of information available, but I thought it could also be useful as a thread where people could share their experiences with these and also it might be a way to discover something helpful unexpectedly. I was also so hopeful about the pineapple and know there are others on this site with chronic pain, so I thought I'd mention it.
